Self-Myofascial Release or "foam rolling" was once only the domain of athletes, coaches and therapists. But has today, it has become a familiar everyday practice. Self-Myofascial is a fancy word for self-massage of muscle tightness and trigger points. This tool helps to bring muscles back to a healthy elastin state so that they can function quickly and more efficiently.
DID YOU KNOW
Foam rolling reduces muscle tightness using the pressure to stimulate nerve receptors that allow the muscle to release tight tissue.
Foam rolling is best performed after exercise or the following day, rather than as a pre-exercise tool.
Foam rolling is not a cure - mobility has a lot to do with the joints, not just the tissue.
Improved blood flow to the muscles from rolling out will help remove toxins from the body faster and can help with the appearance of cellulite.
